I’m a Celebrity’s Jacqueline Jossa wore a wig for transformation

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! winner Jacqueline Jossa displayed a dramatic hair change earlier this week, appearing with a sleek long bob, marking a huge transformation for the actress as she is known for her long locks.

The reigning Queen of the Jungle had unveiled a new look on her Instagram page ahead of the launch of her next collection with In The Style.

Now, she has revealed in an Instagram story that she was actually wearing a wig for a photoshoot for the clothing line.

In the video, her hair stylist (Carl Bembridge) stands behind her and whips off the wig, much to their joint amusement.

The star sent Instagram into meltdown when she first shared the image, captioning it “Kylie vibes. Shooting my collection with @inthestyle coming THURSDAY!”

The star had teased the look in her Instagram stories too, first sharing a video from hairdresser Carl Bembridge’s Instagram page, before unveiling her new hairstyle in a quick video.

“Good morning everybody,” she said in the clip. “I am here for Day 2. We’ve gone for a different look today – short bob, I’m going for Kylie vibes.”

And it wasn’t long before she caught the attention of some of her former I’m a Celeb and soap stars, with Extra Camp host Adam Thomas commenting: “Damnnnnnn girl !!!!!”

The former EastEnders actress has been busy since she left Walford two years ago, having opened up her own drama school, the Jac Jossa Academy, and enjoyed a stint in the jungle.

Jaqueline has never ruled out a return to EastEnders and has previously admitted she hopes Lauren Branning will turn up again at some point, but she recently dropped a huge hint that a return might already be on the cards.

Paying tribute to the BBC soap for its 35th anniversary, Jacqueline posted a picture of herself in character on her Instagram page earlier this month.

“I had such an amazing time and LOVED Lauren Branning with ALL of my heart! I miss you lozza, maybe see you again one day,” she wrote. “Amazing week of eps congrats everyone involved!”

Jacqueline was written out of the show alongside Lorna Fitzgerald – who played her on-screen sister Abi – around two years ago. Lauren is still alive and currently living in New Zealand, so there’s always the option of a return – especially now Peter Beale has made a comeback too.

Let’s hope Lauren will be back soon!

I’m a Celebrity will return later this year on ITV.
